Stains on your roof could be a result of a number of causes.  Some stains are harmless, while others are signs of something more serious going on. If you notice any stains on your roof, it’s a good idea to have a roofing professional come out to check them out.

If you notice black stains that usually appear in streaks on your roof, it’s likely because of a type of algae that is especially common on the East Coast. These stains can be cleaned, but they will often reappear and repeated cleaning can cause damage to your roof. So, it’s best to have a professional clean these stains from time to time if you want to remove them.

If you notice reddish orange stains on your roof, especially if they’re present around your roof’s metal flashing, it’s likely rust. If the rust stains are concentrated around your chimney, you will probably want to have your chimney checked out to make sure that everything is functioning properly. 

If you notice stains concentrated in one particular area of your roof, these stains could be from yard debris, especially if the stains are near any overhanging trees. To help solve this issue, it’s a good idea to keep any trees near your roof trimmed.

If you notice any mold or mildew growth on your roof, there’s likely some excessive moisture in your roof, and this could lead to roof leaks and other damage to your roof and home. So, be sure to have your roof checked out as soon as you notice any of these stains.
